931 thought on “The Tempest (Folger Shakespeare Library)

  1. I had no idea anyone would pirate a copy of Shakespeare, but this one was a fake My first clue was that it didn t make sense when I tried to read it because it didn t start at the beginning of Act I Scene I The pages are out of order Then when I looked closer, I saw that they misspelled edited on the cover It says editied instead DO NOT BUY if you actually want to read The Tempest.


  2. The pages in this particular version are scrambled within scenes, within acts, and across the front matter I have tried to reach the Folger Shakespeare Library to alert them to this printing error without success Same with Simon and Schuster, the publishers Perhaps someone will see this and remedy the situation.


  3. Apparently the last play Shakespeare wrote by himself It s a nice, clean work, and smooth to read There s a tradition seeing this as Shakespeare s farewell to the stage, and I think that reading fits Sometimes I think the clowns and fools in the plays are expressing Shakespeare s own opinions, but that s not a perfect fit Prospero is probably the closest we get to a Shakespeare proxy, and this makes Prospero s plea for rest at the end of the play all the touching.The Signet specifically is a gre [...]


  4. Since has, as often, bundled together a dozen or different editions of the same text in this case, Shakespeare s late Romance Comedy, The Tempest I should make it clear that I m reviewing the Tempest as presented in the old New Arden Edition 1958 , edited by Frank Kermode since replaced in the series , and in the current Folger Shakespeare Library New Folger Library Shakespeare series edited by Mowat and Werstine Alas, other editors names are sometimes attached to the pictures Since also bundles [...]


  5. I really can t speak highly enough of this version of The Tempest The notes on the text, the layout, and the modern typeface combined with First Folio spelling and punctuation make this the most actable version of a Shakespeare play that I ve seen They ve even laid it out so that each page of text is faced with a blank page, perfect for writing blocking, text, and direction notes The only small gripe I have, and it is a minute one, is that the binding could be sturdier the cover of mine is busil [...]


  6. I always found Prospero s masque at the end of The Tempest difficult Back in the late sixties I was too inexperienced to sense how it was a mockery of itself and studying for A level, it was just not an option, to see the play performed on any stage or in any film So it was that the masque never lived for me on the page The peerless Arden could have lightened up Just over half way through the plot it is real fun to look behind the scenes where Cupid has been trying to get the lovers to indulge i [...]


  7. I bought the Kindle version of this great play to facilitate reading out loud in a group But the erratic pagination, with the text suddenly broken by blocks of footnotes, often in the middle of a sentence, made me give up and return gratefully to a properly printed edition albeit one with a much smaller typeface.It is also extraordinary that the Acts and Scenes are not individually indexed in the table of contents The whole play has but a single heading To find your place you have to page throug [...]
